Considerations When Migrating from Wildfly to Payara Server

Migrating applications from WildFly to Payara Server can be a simple and straightforward process because both servers rely on the Jakarta EE (Java EE) specifications. However, there are differences in many areas because many Java EE APIs in WildFly and Payara Server are implemented by different components.
